Pro Wedding Planner
For Type A brides who want to manage every little detail, this app practically does it all. In addition to a seating plan utility, the app allows users to create an augmented reality by uploading images of the reception site. Brides can then decorate the room on their phones to see how everything will look. When that's done, track RSVPs, to-do-lists and budgets all in the same space.
This service connects you to your guests after the wedding. You can thank them personally without having to handwrite each individual note. You can even digitize your own handwriting! However, this luxury does cost, and for 80 notes its $112.00 and $1.40 per additional note. No worries though–notes do rollover!
